A truly revolutionary electronic cue training device for improving player performance through stroke consistency and accuracy. Aligned with OB Cues mission to help players get serious about their game, this patent pending training aid will benefit novices and professionals alike.
Simply slide the DigiCue onto the butt end of your cue, push the power button and then play your game of choice. This device is like having your own personal coach giving you immediate feedback on every shot that you shoot by alerting you with vibrations when it detects any inconsistencies in your stroke when you hit a ball with your cue.

*Please note that it is quite possible that the DigiCue may be prohibited by certain leagues or event organizers as it becomes more well-known and that is okay. Remember, it is a training aid designed primarily to be used when you train/practice. It is just a nice bonus that it also works during normal game play. So use it when you train/practice and when you play challenge matches against your friends and it will help you to develop stronger fundamentals.
"On the medium setting, I played some games of 9 ball, to see what the DigiCue showed. Alas, it seems I need some work on my stroke delivery. Simple shots, no problem; hard stroke, spin shots, THAT shows the flaws. I can see that with a practice routine which would allow you to replay the shots several times, the device would let you pinpoint the problem, and work on correcting errors in your delivery. I noticed that if I made a very conscious effort to deliver a good stroke, I could really minimize the error vibrations. That was encouraging." Charlie Gould, South Dakota
"On the first setting-beginner- I hit about 5 or 6 straight in shots with only stop and mild follow; it didn't vibrate at all. Then I purposefully stood up on my stroke and it went off. On the same level; it did vibrate on a couple draw shots and a few with sidespin. On this level I was able to concentrate and keep it from vibrating on long follow and most draw shots. But, anything more than a tip to tip and a half of side spin and it vibrated most of the time. Now I know what to work on. I tried the next level and had about the same results. But, I think I was paying more attention to my stroke and follow thru. So far, I like it. I've been reading some comments that it really doesn't have the capability to connect to a device to tell you exactly what you are doing wrong or give a chart; but I think its main objective is to let you know when you did "something" wrong. It's really up to the shooter to try the same shot again and concentrate on the fundamentals to eliminate the vibration. Kinda like those electric dog fences. This is a very fun tool." Dave Suarez, New Jersey
"I received the DigiCue this week and tried it out. I played with it mostly set on intermediate. Center ball, follow or draw were no problem, the DigiCue stayed "quiet". When I attempted some longer shots with inside or outside english it vibrated more than I'd thought it would. There were also some strokes that felt very good to me and yet it vibrated. Mostly the vibration was late, I tend to move at the end of my stroke. Initially, before receiving and trying the device out, I was disappointed that there is no indication for what type of flaw was detected. I now think that it is fine as is. The slight vibration saying there was a stroke error is enough for me. It forces you to feel your body a bit more and think of the whole stroke, including finish. I purposely jabbed and/or muscled a few strokes and the response was immediate. Slowing down and being very conscious of having a fluid stroke resulted in a few balls hanging up in the jaws. These were balls I'd normally make, so I must be steering a bit." Dave Monahan, New York
"It is a fantastic tool to improve your game at a very reasonable price. I think it is a well made product and a fantastic training aide. The Digicue would vibrate when I faltered somehow in my stroke, I was able to figure out what I was doing incorrectly and solve the problem. For those concerned about the Digicue causing any damage to your cues I just do not see how that would be possible. Like OB claims you just slip on to the end of your cue. The Digicue appears to be made from a nice flexible silicon rubber that is memory resistant and soft, it is not a hard, stiff rubber piece. Since it slips on to the butt of the cue I was a little concerened about bouncing my cue on the floor, something I frequently do but I am aware of it because I also own a bumperless cue so it was not difficult for me to adjust." Bob Faestel, Wisconsin
"Since converting to American Pool after years of playing English Pool and Snooker, I had heard of many different ways to train your stroke with the most popular one being to cue into a coke/wine bottleneck. So I tried it and it was great, however something was missing and I didn't feel as if it translated into my practice/match game. Now using the OB DigiCue, I get to play a full rack both in practice and in Tournament with instant feedback via the butt of the playing cue. Any issue with my stroke is picked up and I can correct it with the very next shot. It's a revolutionary step/change from the old analogue system into the new digital age that Billiards has been waiting for." Del Sim-Pro Player, New York
"The DigiCue is like having a constant coach with you every time you play. Constantly and silently reminding you to improve your stroke by staying down and following through on every shot. It will improve your focus and renew your desire to improve. You will get better and play better." Joe Tucker-Pro Player, Coach and Billiard Product Inventor, Rhode Island
“DigiCue works great for feedback of the stroke. No in-depth analysis but direct feedback after the stroke which works really fine. I am sure use in practice makes you up the quality of the delivery on a consistent basis. You put it on the butt of the cue and when the delivery is flawed or player moves too quick after the shot, it vibrates, which is Felt clearly.” Alex Lely-Pro Player, Commentator, Journalist, Coach, Netherlands
“I realized that I get a little "jabby" with my draw stroke sometimes and I believe I'm steering my side spin shots a little rather than stroking through on a straight line. I had no idea I was doing this and would have sworn I was stroking straight through so this was very enlightening. Having a tool that really lets you know how your stroke is doing vs just what you think it’s doing is really valuable. I think sometimes we assume things are good enough when we’re making balls but then when we have a bad night we’re not sure why we’re not making balls. The underlying cause is deficiencies in the stroke which lead to inconsistency and some nights of being “on” and others being “off”. Having a stroke training device like this for practice sessions seems incredibly useful to work on building a consistently sound stroke. I see myself using it for practice sessions but leaving it off when playing matches. However, should things fall apart during a match I could see wanting to pull it out to reinforce focusing on stroking properly because that is likely what has broken down on me.” Chris Long, Wisconsin
“From a player point of view, it works perfectly during set, practice shots to really hone in the freeze and still hands. Playing with it on full time, it buzzes if I move my hands prior to 2 seconds or so. That’s a bit disruptive for me. And playing on a bar table, you need to move or else you’ll get hit with an object ball or cueball. Incidentally, the bumper design of the Digicue works as a bumper should. I confess to smacking that bumper when a particular shot went awry... still works! Overall, I think the Digicue is a fantastic idea, and that every instructor should have one or twelve. I’ve commented on what improvements I think could be made, but this released version is no prototype and works as designed. Great job Nathan and the OB team!
